Not only is it a member of one of our most-loved hair care collections, but it's also packed with benefits. This curl-defining cream delivers maximum curl definition, but it also works to seal in hair moisture, control hair frizz, and add hair shine.

Formulated with Not Your Mother's Rice Curl Complex—a blend of rice, keratin amino acids, and enzymes—our Curl Talk Defining Cream will hydrate, condition, and enhance the retention of your curls.

This defining curly hair cream contains protein and is also great for all curly hair types—2A, 2B, 2C, 3A, 3B, 3C, 4A, 4B, & 4C—including both natural hair and color-treated hair. Made with good vibes only, it is sulfate surfactant-free, silicone-free, paraben-free, drying alcohol-free, and cruelty-free.

When ready to use Not Your Mother's Curl Talk Defining Curl Cream, evenly apply a small amount of the Citrus-Jasmine-scented cream to damp curls, working it from your hair roots through to the ends and adding more as needed. Give yourself a moment to enjoy the notes of lemon, jasmine, rose water, sunflower, and sandalwood.

Doesn’t work for my daughter’s hair. Doesn’t smooth fly aways or really define the curl. She has coarse curly hair.

I have super frizzy 2c hair and this cream completely controlled it when nothing else will. I apply after washing my hair and it will last 2 days. I pair it with the mousse and foam and it is just perfect for my hair.

Made my ends so dry. I have fine thin curly hair. I have never had a product dry my hair out so bad. Plus, it feels and smells like it has a ton of silicone

Loved that it made my hair stay curly all day. I don’t like if you put too much it makes your hair hard and stiff. The cost has gone up and the size seems a little smaller.

Kiki - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Maybe I’m crazy but I feel like it dried out my hair, or at least made it look dry. I put on the tiniest amount (literally a pea size) just to test the waters and my hair almost looks fried if that makes sense. My curls look the opposite of defined. I’m typically between 2c & 3a, but my hair looks wavy and damaged right now. Sometimes a curl cream will either be too heavy or make my hair crunchy, but I’ve never had this happen before.

So I went and got a haircut and I was talking to the hairdresser about my daughter's hair she's 4 years old her hair is Curly and super thin and it gets very naughty and Frizzy well she mentioned this product I already use the leave-in conditioner and the shampoo and conditioner I didn't know about this product and let me tell you it's a Holy Grail product that I will be using often her hair looks so beautiful I love how thick it is as well she told me to use a hair oil before I apply it but what I did was I used the leave-in conditioner before I applied it because that's what I read online in her hair is beautiful

I tried to make this work in many ways (layering it with mousse, gels, etc to finish). For some reason, my hair felt dry and rough each time I used this in my hair and I knew this was the culprit since it was the only product changed in my routine. I have coarse thick curly hair already and didn't need it to feel even moreso. I hoped to find a good budget curl cream but this was NOT it.

Disappointed- I’ve always bought and loved NYM curl creams but they are always changing it. Kinky moves was great all around but this is a little more sticky / drying and I cannot stand the smell. Such a bummer.
